Christmas Tags Day 5

Hello Delightful Friends and Family! '
 If you are returning for Day 5 of my Christmas tags, 

Here are some more of my favorite tags.
I've entered them in the Try Stampin' on Tuesday - Tag-Stavaganza
Totally PaperCrafts Challenge Blog #196 (Anything Christmassy but not a card)

 Aren't these cute?!
All the trees are from Taylored Expressions (Woodland Winter set and matching dies)
Left tag sentiment is from Lawn Fawn (Peace, Joy, Love set)  I've added Liquid Pearls to embellish.
Right tag: sentiment stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs and the Stitch lines are from the Lawn Fawn set; the Holly is from the Taylored Expressions set mentioned above.

Sentiments are stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs (Luke 2:11 and Christmas Verses)
EK Success Corner rounder on left tag; Oval scallop is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. The Holly berry stamp is that notorious unknown stamp set.

 Close up of the details
Tag on the left:  background was first made with the Distress ink pads & stains, Dylusions ink sprays, a mini mister filled with water and a craft sheet, dried with a heat gun and then embossed with a Sizzix (Alterations) Holly folder; the seam binding was dyed using the matching inks from the background colors and then I pleated it (here is a TUTORIAL for the pleated ribbon) and adhered it to the designer paper (Carta Bella - "Merry Notes" So this is Christmas Collection) Added a bow and a button (Queen & Co) to finish it off.
Tag on the right: background laid down first, then stenciled (Alterations Harlequin design) over the background.  Then the layers begin with the Carta Bella Paper, Holly leaves stamped and fussy cut, spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  Buttons (Queen and Co.) added for the berries.

Thanks again for visiting and hope you might glean a little crafty inspiration!

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;
 And shout for joy,
 all you upright in heart!  Psalm 32:11
